"Perfect Strangers" as written by and Neil/cody Sedaka....
An afternoon of sad affairs
Shared in the hope of mending broken dreams
The constant struggle after simple pleasures
Finds us perfect strangers, you and I

You know I hate to see you cry
And through the tears that fall like winter rain
You say you're tired of merely just surviving
We've so much in common that we're

[Chorus:]
Perfect strangers singing perfectly in tune
From separate corners of the room
Held together by our hunger to get by
Perfect strangers, you and I

Let's make a toast to no regrets
Wet down the painful sting of sweet love lost
Let evening find us whispering in our whiskey
Come and sit beside me for a while

You know I love to see you smile
And if perhaps you're only passing through
At least we tried to reach an understanding
And for just one moment we were

[Chorus x 2]
